Statement

Over the project I have had the opportunity to do two amazing photoshoots. They have been my dream to do, and I have finally got here. I was lucky to go up and do an air-to-air photoshoot with a spitfire from a helicopter, this has been my biggest achievement in my skill set and interest in aviation photography. Secondly, I managed to get a place

‘Fashion through Film’ 

Progressed from

The Sele School — GCSE

Statement

My concept was to create fashion based commercial photography by using scenes and identifying colour palettes from various genres of film. Exploring different eras of film allowed me to experiment with depicting styles of fashion throughout the generations. I used traditional 35mm film photography to replicate the aesthetic of the dated films scenes. While developing my project, I adapted my interpretation of the films, taking inspiration of the original stories and used them to influence the creation of my conceptual fashion images.

‘Human Hybrids’ 

Progressed from

Hertford Regional College — UAL Level 2 Diploma in Art & Design (Fine Art)

Statement

The concept of my work explores the idea of Surrealism in London, I have done this by photographing a range of people and their dogs that I have met while exploring the city. London has a perception of being one of the most surreal cities in the world, it seems to hold a gravitational pull bringing in people from all backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities and identities. In my work I have experimented with layering and printing images using analogue and darkroom techniques. I have created surreal images through photomontage inspired by the work of Man Ray & Wanda Wulz.

‘The emotions’ 

Progressed from

 Hertford Regional College — UAL Level 2 Art and Design

Statement

My work explores the bridge between emotion and emotionless, I want my images to convey the topic of mental health as this has a big impact on young peoples lives today. As a society we are now becoming much more aware of mental health issues and I want my work to help bring awareness to this subject. Inspired by the work of Sarah Bahbah and Chris Hopkins I have photographed a series of portraits and self portraits reflecting on personal experiences, utilising a rage of lighting techniques adding to the emotion through the use of colour theory.

 ‘Automotive Journey’

Progressed from

Richard Hale — GCSE

Statement

My project had the intent of capturing the progression of motor vehicles throughout the last 50 – 60 years. I wanted to capture the early stages of car invention all the way to the pinnacle of engineering which is what we see sprinting around race tracks every weekend. I captured this by travelling to different countries and finding cars from different eras of life and culture. I decided to shoot close up to capture close details of the cars to better present this evolution and how everything from the shape to the inside of the cars has changed since the contrivance of these vehicles.

‘Contrast and Contradictions’ 

Progressed from

The Sele School  — GCSE

Statement

My idea investigates everyday contradictions as well as identifies the differences between film and digital photography. Through comparing the two practices I created digital and film images, capturing the same subjects to show off how similar or different the outcomes can be. The imagery itself focused on depicting contrast and contradictions as the primary focus of the photography as a way of representing antithesis on its own.

‘Fashion through Time’ 

Progressed from

Freman College — GCSEs

Statement

My project focuses on Fashion throughout the decades, individually presented within the commercial use of promoting, further extending my knowledge around editorial based work. Each piece shows the development around the Fashion industry, changing through time in such major publications as VOGUE, DAZED and Vanity fair. The main concept of my work is demonstrated through the use of contemporary and historical techniques such as digital, post production and analogue Photography. My images aim to divide the qualities in each period of Fashion from 1900s to present-day.

‘Human vs Nature’

Progressed from

The Chauncy School — GCSE

Statement

This work was created to show the differences in human made aspects and the natural nature that we live in today. I wanted to convey how the two can be blended seamlessly as today we often don’t differential the two. My aim for this project was to show how two vastly different subjects are entangled to create a normality in the 21st centry. The raw images were subtly enhanced on photoshop to highlight the key features of the image without altering the rest of the photograph.

‘It’s a Wonderful World’ 

Progressed from

The sele school — GCSE

Statement

My work was created with the intentions of capturing the beauty and innocence of the animals around me. Deliberately edited in a contrast of soft compared to dramatic to reflect their personalities and the similarities to childish innocence they possess. Inspired by my own views as an artist, I captured my animals in their most natural element in my home and combined them with the editing skills which I had developed during my time at college.

 ‘Our United Kingdom’  

Progressed from

Richard Hale School — GCSE

Statement

This series of images is an investigation into the perception and reality of living in the United Kingdom. I wanted to look at documenting a realistic representation of social issues living in the UK today. I often feel that the UK is romanticised for being ‘quaint and picturesque’, as this is what is portrayed through the media, when in reality there are a lot of issues surrounding social housing and poverty. I wanted to focus on this by documenting the ‘antithesis’ of the outside perception of the United Kingdom.

‘Day & Night’

Progressed from

Hertford Regional College — UAL Level 2 Diploma in Art & Design (Fine Art)

Statement

This project seeks to portray the differences between day and night and the antithesis you can notice between the two times of the day. I wanted to convey the change in atmosphere visually and emotionally through people’s character and external elements. The same photo taken at two different times of the day can have an array of perspectives showcasing the contrasting worlds that we live in during the day compared to the night.
